“My Durango "Fav"”
Reviewed March 31, 2009

This is a wonderful place to eat. The service is exemplary every time. The atmosphere is warm, fun, cozy and relaxing. Their salad bar is to die for and the entrees are equally as good. We've lived in Durango since the early 1990s and have only had excellent experiences at The Red Snapper. It's obvious the staff are highly trained in customer service.

“Great Dining in Durango”
Reviewed August 8, 2008

If you are ever in Durango you should not miss a visit to the Red Snapper restuarant, 144 East 9th Street, just off the main drag. The restaurant has a cosy and intimate atmosphere and combines a high standard of food with being family friendly. As its name implies it offers a range of well presented and great value fish dishes but combines this with a menu which also offers steaks. My wife and I were so impressed with the restaurant that we dined there three nights in a row during our visit to Durango in July 2008. Each main fish course comes with a trip to the salad bar. You may think that's no big deal, but you haven't seen the salad bar - it has the widest variety of any that I have seen anywhere. The salad bar vist constitutes a meal in itself. The wine list is well priced so that dining there is not a strain on the wallet. We can vouch for the high quality of the fish as we sampled that on each of our three visits. This restaurant is highly recommended.

“Great Place”
Reviewed July 10, 2008

We have been to the Red Snapper several times, most recently in May 2008. It's always good with excellent service. Probably has the best, albeit small, salad bar in Durango. I highly recommend this restaurant. It's not cheap, but the value is consistent with the pricing.

“Phenomenal Restaurant!! Spectacular Service - Best Food in Durango!!”
Reviewed June 18, 2008

WOW!! What a phenomenal restaurant! The service was spectacular and the food...Best in DURANGO!!! We really enjoyed the atmosphere with the large fish tank and aquarium. Our table was located next to the open kitchen - which gave us great pleasure to watch the chef(s) as they prepared our dinners. Our server was very busy although she was more attentive than I have ever experienced! Our meals were beyond belief -5 star qualities in taste and appearance! Of course I cannot forget dessert - literally to DIE for! We ordered their ‘signature’ dessert…Death By Chocolate with cappuccinos. I have never seen a dessert so BIG and our server made our cappuccinos with hearts designed in the foam. We Loved the Red Snapper will be back soon!
